Fifth year K-8 art teacher in charter school setting
FUN -- I like to incorporate art making with art history, encourage critical thinking and discussion with open-ended answers. I cover everything from architecture to prehistoric art to contemporary art -- methods, materials, artists. I cover a bit of everything with teaching kindergarten through eighth grade. :)
Graduated from Penn State with high distinction (B.S. in Art Education with a minor in Art History)
Attended Pratt MWP Art Institute my freshman year of undergrad, where I completed my foundation art courses. For the rest of my undergrad, I studied at Penn State University, where I graduated with high distinction.
I'm a newlywed, living in central Pennsylvania... addicted to Pinterest and working in a charter school teaching K-8 art. I love designing my own curriculum and making art meaningful to students.
